Pitaya is a wild and exotic fruit that occurs mainly in the months of May and June. This comes from Mexico and Central America and belongs to the Cactaceae family, of the genus Stenocereus. The pitayas are sweet and very colorful, they are usually cultivated both as ornamental plants and for the collection of the fruit. This fruit has healing properties, as it contains nutritional attributes, in addition to helping digestion because it is rich in fiber. Techaluta de Montenegro is the municipality of Jalisco to which its harvest and commercialization are owed.
Approximately 80% of the population of this municipality benefits from the trade of this fruit. Amacueca is also one of the municipalities that mostly celebrate this popular fruit with its traditional Pitaya Fair. This fruit is born from a cactus covered with thorns, a pitayo, which can produce up to four thousand pitayas that mature throughout the season. This plant generates a beautiful flower, which when pollinated, becomes this exotic fruit.

Materials: The leather used in this collection are treated with 100% vegetable materials. This means that different natural products are used in its tanning process instead of using chemicals that are harmful to the environment. These natural products are usually branches of trees and plants, such as chestnut and tara, sticks, roots and nuts, which are powdered and used to tan leather. The anilines used to color your bag, like the waxes that create the two-tone effect, are of plant origin. For this reason, any irregularity that is noticed in the skin is the effect of the natural process. As a suggestion, do not expose your bag to the sun for a long time as some oxidation could be noticed in the color, as happens with fruit.
Care: Carlota pieces are made with high-quality materials, and therefore should be treated with care, and protected against the elements. Due to the delicate nature of the materials, daily use can cause scratches and scuff marks on the surface, so we recommend you treat it with care. The leather is submitted to an important natural dye process, and the suede lining is pigmented with natural anilines, so we recommend that you be careful with any light-colored items that may come into contact with it.
